    I used less jalapeños, and added diced red bell pepper and scallions! Cook bacon in a pan all the way, and get strips into muffin tin cups quickly, before they set up (bacon won’t cook much more in the oven, except for the exposed edges, which might get crunchy!) Also, bake at 350° instead of 375 for about 18–20 minutes. If you only want to make three or four at a time, the rest of the egg mixture can be stored in the fridge until you’re ready to make a few more!

    Great flavor! I subbed half an onion for one of the jalapeños, but still had a great amount of spice!!

    Love these!!! A bit of work to prepare but they reheat nicely. A great addition to my breakfast favorites.

    We’re from Texas and love spicy so we don’t de seed the jalapeños. Second time modified it with adding red pepper - and have made it twice and definitely forgot to slice the jalapeños for the garnishes

    Family loved them. I had some leftover mixture so I dumped it in an oven safe pot, and stuck it in there with the cups to bake as a casserole.

    My daughter and I agreed this is the best breakfast dish I've ever made. I was worried to use four jalapenos, so just used one large one. Maybe next time I'll use two. super easy to make and really delicious.

    Great, really delicious. I'm probably jusr going to chop up the bacon next time. Dont see any reason to go through the trouble putting it around the edge.

    Great! Make certain bacon is limp and pan sprayed well

    These were easy to make and turned out really well. I ate these during my commute to work and loved the flavor combination with the jalapenos.

    Loved it!!! I fried my bacon too long so it was hard to wrap BUT lesson learned & will make again

    These hit the spot but a little time consuming. I didn’t have enough bacon to fry so used my thick already cooked bacon from Costco and that worked well plus saves a step. Also my eggs stuck to the pan so make sure to grease the bottoms well. Will make again for sure!
    Easy to make and would make again

    Two jalapeños sufficed for us, and no added salt. So good!

    I know I can trust ANY recipe from "ruled.me" to be good and tasty and more importantly, HEALTHY. Excellent recipe. Cooked jalapeños do NOT have the hot taste of cooked jalapeños at all. But they have higher nutritional value, especially for the eyes.
